Nakumatt Rwanda says that it is battling the increasing number of shoplifters.
The retail subsidiary of Kenya’s Nakumatt Supermarket says that at least one shoplifting case is registered everyday.
“On average we register 25-30 cases of shoplifting per month and we take necessary measures,” said Adan Ramata, Nakumatt’s Country Manager.
However, the behavior had significantly gone down given the fact that in the past, shoplifting cases were as high as 50 people per month.
Ramata says that people steal all sorts of products ranging from alcohol, food stuff, and soft drinks among others.
The giant supermarket operates one branch in Kigali and plans to open two more branches in Remera and Nyarutarama, increasing its investment above the initial $2million.
